Good point. If I step outside the 'syslog event' mindset for a moment,
and think of arbitrary (potentially binary) data where I don't have
control the UDP packet size of the sender, this becomes more obvious.

Fair enough. I'm going to have to write something anyway (even though
my requirements are much smaller/simpler, there are a few shared

If it's going to be quicker to wrestle something into stunnel than
start from scratch, I'll zap a patch out.

Thanks Brian.
